Last weekend I received a package containing the first issue of It’s Nice That, the biannual companion publication of the blog of the same name. It seems a bit strange to be blogging about a printed compilation of blog content, but I have to say I was quite pleased with the experience of opening the package, smelling the ink, leafing through the pages, and even seeing the brief hand written thank you note. If you have read my previous posts you’ll know that I’m a bit of a bibliophile so I definitely appreciate the compilation with its added features and interviews. I was thinking that I would go into a whole print versus web deal here, but that has been done to death. It suffices to say that if you’re interested in contemporary art and design you should, at the very least, check out the blog and, if you like that, consider ordering the publication. It’s nice.
